Multiplo Has Big Plans

Distributors

Today we want to give you an update about Multiplo's life after Kickstarter. As well as having our own online website for sales and support, we are intending to sell through local distributors in many countries. This means you will be able to enjoy more local support as well as local currency purchases.

While we have not finalized distributor licensing yet, we can tell you we have been approached by distributors from these countries/regions already: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Spain, Singapore and Switzerland.

If you don't see your country listed here and you think that there is somebody we should get in contact there, please let us know. Also we appreciate a lot the help we have been receiving these days from teachers that are finding the most creative ways to promote education with robotics.

Fans Everywhere!

We are very glad about the community of like-minded people that is growing around us. From one of our backers we got something unexpected. Martin Romero is a professional industrial designer specialized in satellites. He thought that it could be a good idea to prepare for us some 3D models so we could all see the robots in colors to decide. Of course these are only renders based on a picture we sent him, but in any case, something really cool is happening between the Open Source community. And we are happy of being part of it.

We are becoming famous!

We already included in an update that we have been covered by Mashable, MakerMaster, TechCrunch and Makezine. Since then we also appeared at CNN Mexico, The Tech Journal, Geek and others. We even appeared in several different languages, check it out:

      It reminded me of Skywarp and the Insectacons from the Transformers. Purple and black with golden accents.

      I really like the bottom one. It reminds me of a certain robot themed children's cartoon from the 80s.

      Hi!
      Chuck: Thanks for your kindly comments!
      Trevor: We will try to make the parts with different color options and offer them to the backers. But we are working hard in the production and the available quantity of colors will probably depend on the scale of production. Also, please take into account that these are renders provided by a collaborator. But as they look great, we are considering them seriously.
      Thanks!

      So hard to decide. They all look awesome. Is "all of the above" a suitable option? :)

      The colors in the two middle renders look best! Can't wait for project delivery. No matter the color, this will be some great time spent with my son and daughter!
